It seems that a lot of schools just send secondaries to everyone who sends a primary as a regular part of their fundraising. Does anyone know which schools actually screen applicants, particularly in the top 30 or so?

Mayo is a bunch of bastards. But I think the school seems really cool.

Its terrible that many schools send secondaries to people they have no intention of interviewing even with good essays.

It would be a TERRIBLE economic decision to be selective in sending secondaries. Schools cost millions and millions of dollars to operate, I'm sure any sort of fund raising is very beneficial.

The new 2009-2010 MSAR book lists which schools screen applicants before sending out secondary applications.
